clinton. >> -- i'll ask michael if this was the first campaign video for decision 2016. >> good to have you with us, folks. thanks for watching. john boehner is hanging on to their ideological hats. the latest attempt to change the conversation is a plan the american people rejected a month ago. the republican counteroffer to the white house plan relies on $800 billion. the plan does not raise any tax rates on the top income earners. it also contains $600 billion in health care cuts. who has been for that? nobody. there are $300 billion in cuts in mandatory government programs and another $300 billion in cuts to agency budgets and discretionary spending. the speaker's office sent a letter outlining the plan saying new revenue would be generated through pro-growth tax reform that closes special interest loopholes and deductions while lowering rates. oh boy. it's the mitt romney plan again. the offer letter actually described the proposal as the bowles plan. republicans say the plan is based on the outline for the debt commission co-chair. the approach outlined in the letter speaker boehn

back in 1996, during the whole conflict with the clinton administration over the government shutdown. i was totally opposed to any tax increases at that time. but to say that a pledge on an issue like taxes would last for a lifetime is ridiculous. ronald reagan raised taxes a number of times because that's what he had to do to close the deal. >> when norquist started his anti-tax pledge, the deficit was $220 billion. now, it tops $1 trillion. this is a turning point for the gop or at least it could be. the other thing you need to know about is the money trail. in 2010, 66% of funding for americans for tax reform, norquist's group, came from two billionaire groups, according to an investigation by the nation magazine, karl rove's group, crossroads gps, gave $4 million. the center to protect patients rights, one of the front groups for the koch brothers, gave over $4 million. >>> congressman, good to have you with us. that tells you all you need to know. norquist group is simply another front for millionaires and billionaires that don't want to see their taxes go up at all under any circu

's dangerous. remember, he was the one that went after houma abidean, hillary clinton's aide in the secretary of state office and accused her of being aligned with the brotherhood. she needed additional security. this man is irresponsible and dangerous. the fact he's serving in congress is disturbing to me. >> there are a number of conspiracy theories on the president. the birther nonsense, the muslim theory, he's a socialist, he's a communist. now they think he's trying to repeal the 22nd amendment so he can win a third term. what about that? >> it just doesn't get any more bizarre. i have to tell you, i have a little bit of a different take besides the fact i think louie gohmert is obviously a bit crazy. i think he's also a narcissist. this man lives on television. he lives on radio. he is on all the time. that's why we're hearing all these conspiracy theories. you know what would be great, if he spent half the time he spent on tv spinning these wild theories on working on helping to fix the country and the problems that are wrong with this country. and the fact he spends so much time on th
